Travel info 2017
We will organise transport from Ålesund Airport to Bjørke on the Friday and back on the Monday, so do get in touch to time your flights to our transport alternatives.
Although Norwegian has discontinued their direct “indiepop flight” Gatwick-Ålesund, there are plenty of ways to get to Bjørke for guests from abroad. It may take some of you a little longer this year, and it may be more expensive – but once you get to the village and Indiefjord 2017 we hope you’ll feel relaxed. You’ll definitely deserve a refreshing fjord swim! We’ll organise a Friday/Monday indiepop airport/food shopping bus for visitors from afar this year, too. And if you get to Bjørke for the Friday evening there’s bound to be an informal welcome party!
Here is a google doc containing transport alternatives for people traveling by plane:
